Interpretations of Stromal Cells and Their Medical Relevance in the Treatment of Kittens and Puppies

Author(s): Andrew Symonds

The ability to differentiate into many cell types and the capacity to multiply like undifferentiated cells make stromal cells multipotent cells. The therapeutic potential of MSCs, such as cell therapy or tissue regeneration, is the subject of extensive research, and MSCs are regarded as potent instruments in veterinary regenerative medicine. Due to their immunosuppressive, immunomodulatory, and anti-inflammatory qualities as well as their minimal teratogenic risk as compared to pluripotent stem cells, they are the most popular type of adult stem cells in clinical studies. The current state of knowledge on MSCs’ basic biology is described in detail in this review. In order to provide an overview of therapeutic developments based on MSCs in dogs and cats, we concentrate on the traits and properties.
